Germantown 02/20/12

Attendance:  3

  • Nick Ferris
  • Bob Jones
  • Stacia Wagner
Likely due to the holiday and the nearness of Prezcon, we mustered only three stalwart players.  Still, some great gaming ensued.

Games Played (scores in order of place):

Crokinole - Nick 175, Bob 60
 - It should be noted that prior to the last turn, the score was a respectable 85 to 60 in Nick's favor.  Nick scored 90 points on the last turn making this a complete blowout.
Stone Age - Stacia 200, Bob 146, Nick 136
 - Stacia crushed us by collecting all eight different symbols on the cards.
San Marco - Nick 74, Stacia 72, Bob 65
 - Bob was ahead after both the first and second scoring rounds but was completely shut down by Nick and Stacia in the third.  He also made one bad split that resulted in Nick and Stacia getting an extra turn without him.

Shadows Over Camelot - An epic battle of good versus evil.  The good Knighs of the Round Table, Doug, Nick, Carol, Eric, Stacia, Laura and Bob, started out with some early victories and really favorable card draws.  The Saxons and Picts were unusually peaceful, the Black Knight easily dispatched, and most effort spent searching for the Grail and Excalibur.  As the game wore on, however, the seven Knights more and more often took grievous bodily wounds as their evil action, endangering their very lives.

No traitor was evident, though the Knights watched closely for any traitorous activity and some had suspicions.  Then, at a particularly weak moment for the Knights, a Morgan card was drawn, doing one point of damage to each Knight.  Unfortunately, loyal Knights Doug, Carol and Nick succumbed to their wounds, leaving Eric, Stacia, Laura and Bob to face an increasingly bleak situation.  Fearing that a traitor would quickly end the game, Stacia asked Bob whether she should accuse Laura, whom she had long suspected of being a traitor.  Bob nodded in agreement.

Laura was accused and revealed herself to be a loyal Knight of the Round Table.  The balance was quickly shifting to evil.  Laura took her turn and it fell to Bob.  To Eric's indignant protest, Bob accused Eric of being the traitor.  Eric exposed his Loyalty card, declaring that Bob had cost the group the game, which was entirely true.

Bob flipped his own card, showing himself to be the traitor and capturing the victory for himself alone.
